There are two issues with Keurig brewers
On the larger ones there is no way to completly empty them of water so if you use part time the water stagnates. This is not, as near as I can tell, an issue with the K-10 or the MINI I believe they empty every use.

Mountains of spent coffee pods. (Waste)

I use sunbeam it is "4 cup" (Really 5) automatic drip. Fills my 24 oz cup to 20 oz level nicely Uses my choice of pods or ground with filter.. Works great Cheeper. I have a 2nd on standby just in case. it's a store brand (Fred's Discount) and like the Sunbeam used ground or pods.


Home is where I park it.

3X on the Mellita Pour Through. We are not big coffee drinkers but do enjoy our cup of "JOE" in the morning. Makes a good cup, quick, simple and takes up very little storage room.

Wif bought another Keurig with glass whatchamacallit and the single do-hikie for just one cup.Gonna have to buy a new larger coach. Sometimes you get a decent cup an sometimes you just trow it out with single serve or flood the counter when you hit the wrong button. A porcelin perculator gives the best coffee I think. Convenience before taste! Shes modernized.

I'm partial to the old Mellita pour through coffee maker. Boil water, pour it through a cone filter filled with coffee, done. Coffee never last long enough camping to get cold anyway.

This is also my method. No electric power needed. In addition my mellita filter has a stem which fits into my Stanley thermos. I discovered that since the coffee is only minimally exposed to air, it tastes fresh many hours later.

As my wife says-morning is for coffee and contemplation. We use AICOOK Espresso and Coffee Machine. It's energy efficient, compact and easy to clean. We like it a lot. There is nothing like a cup of fresh-brewed coffee in the morning. It gives us energy for the whole day.

I tend to like small and light stuff when camping. Maybe it comes from my backpacking and motorcycle travel/camping background. We began using the Aeropress for camping and it makes a great cup of coffee. But you need to heat the water in something else, so you need a teapot or regular pot. We bought one of these. It is a little slow, you have to pour water in for each cup, but it is cheap. No problem so far.

We use Bunn MCU Single Cup Multi-Use Home Coffee Brewer at home most of the time. It will take a Keurig pod, regular ground coffee and even has a setting and accessory for tea bags. It has replaced our Keurig, our 8 cup coffee maker and our electric teapot. Unfortunately, they do not seem to be available currently. If you can find one, I would recommend it.

Everyone is different. I'm not a coffee drinker. I kinda wish I was because I'm sure it's better for me then the can of Mt.Dew that I MUST have in the morning. I also like the smell of coffee. It gives me a stomach ache for some reason through.

I do keep a small percolator in the camper for company. If they don't like it I tell them to drive to town and buy a cup of coffee from somewhere.

I'm seriously thinking about one of those small Keurigs, but in the meantime we're happy using these.

I just got a French Press. now I had one (Off brand) years ago and frankly did not care for it (too messy) but I got a good one from Boxed.com (the original french press it says upon it) makes around 22 oz of coffee.. GOOD COFFEE. used the same fresh ground I use in my auto drip. Same amount.. Dumped it in. Dumped in water "on the boil" (you can heat using any heat source. Wood fire, Propane. Coleman white gas stove, ELectric (i used electric) stir with a "rubber" spoon (Silicon the instructions say "plastic" but I have nice soft silicon) close it up wait 4 minutes gently press, pour and clean it out. that's the part I don't like about it. but it was very good coffee.

I am surprised so few people are recommending a French Press coffee maker. Simple, uses no electricity, makes great coffee.

We use a big stainless steel percolator when we will be having a lot of coffee. When we know it is just going to be a few coffee mugs, then we use the french press.
